New Year’s Day Word Ladders

About this Worksheet:

In this worksheet, you will find a pair of words. You need to find words that connect the two, but you may only change one letter on each step. You must connect the words within the number of steps on the ladder, but you get extra points if you connect them in fewer steps. For example, to connect hot and dig in three steps, the ladder might look like this: hot > dot > dog > dig. This is a great activity to use both at home and in the classroom! Ideal for 2nd-4th Grade, but can be used where appropriate.
